Frustration

has been the name of the game today!! The Aussie Hero quilt is finished
I cleaned all the dog hair off it, did the label, folded it up, gathered the things that had to go with it and went to the Post Office, picked up a B 2 box and realised I had left the address at home!! Back home I came, packed and addressed the box and tried again!! Now it is in the post!!
The binding is finished on the I Spy Quilt, 
I finished the hand sewing in bed this morning while listening to the rain, this is going to a lady at the Guild who takes them to the Geelong hospital for the children's ward.
and this afternoon I have been working on the hexie quilt,
I made a hanging sleeve and when it was finished it was too narrow, so I made another one, then realised I was trying to put it on the long side of the quilt and it was too short...was going to be in the wrong place anyway,...so now the binding is done and the hanging sleeve will be hand sewn on!! Phew!! I think maybe I should have stayed in bed today!!
